Air Liquide Japan announces that it will open “Fukuoka Miyata Hydrogen Station” in Miyawaka City, Fukuoka Prefecture. Construction has been started to complete in February 2017, and open in March 2017.
On October 26, 2016, Air Liquide Japan received the certificate of “Green Asia International Strategic Comprehensive Special Zone” program, from Mr. Hiroshi Ogawa, Governor of Fukuoka Prefecture, as 57th company supported by the program. The station will benefit from METI (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan) and Fukuoka Prefecture support.
The station will be built on the land rented by Toyota Motor Kyushu, Inc., inside its Miyata Plant. The site is located between Fukuoka City and Kita-kyushu City, which have also been equipped with public-use hydrogen stations. Its location, convenient for users, will allow it to become one of the main areas of hydrogen mobility development in Kyushu.
The station employs the “compressed hydrogen off-site” system, bringing high pressure hydrogen gas from sources in Kyushu area, and adjusting the pressure of the material gas to charge hydrogen-powered vehicles.
Air Liquide masters the entire hydrogen supply chain, from production to storage and from distribution to the development of applications for end users. The Group is actively participating in promoting the widespread use of hydrogen as a clean energy, especially for the transportation sector. At the end of 2015, 75 hydrogen charging stations have already been designed and installed by Air Liquide worldwide. In Japan, it co-runs two public-use hydrogen charging stations in Aichi Prefecture through the joint venture with Toyota Tsusho Corporation, and runs one in Saga, which was just opened earlier this year.
